I fix Apple kit for a living Adam, sadly I'm north of Manchester so not local. Try an SMC reset first, google it. Any 'crispy' keys? Symptoms are common with a liquid spill. Also check the vents on the back and ports on the side for any signs of ingress.

Here is a bottle opener fitted to the wall of your hotel room in the Premiere Inn at Heathrow.
Sadly there is a slight problem with the orientation of this thoughtful gesture, can you tell what it is?

Surely a man of your calibre knows how to open a beer bottle on the edge of the bit of a door handle that fits into the slot, if you see what I mean...

Story
Tagline
Long time tech geek & gadget freak. Android/Apple/Linux/Wi-Fi/Ham. Works by day for an Apple Authorised Service Provider in the UK. Likes craft beer, Asian food.
Introduction
In my spare time I enjoy tinkering with gadgets, using Android, Apple, Windows and Linux operating systems. I was taught by my dad from a young age to always use the best tool for the job, this is just the same for operating systems, most have a place.
I'm interested in web and cloud technologies, mobile computing and enjoy watching cute pet videos on YouTube.

I've been a radio ham since 1983 though I am not very active on the bands at all these days, G6PHF is my callsign.
For several years I ran a community wireless network on our housing estate which in it's peak had  15 houses connected via Wi-Fi.
I enjoy genealogy and finding out more about our family history.
My profile photo is currently my grandfather. The other photos are his brothers, my great-uncles.

For a living I repair computers, mostly Apple these days. I run an Apple Authorised Service Provider, AASP, in Lancaster UK called Ubertechs Ltd.
As well as being an AASP we are a reseller for a fantastic wireless product called Meraki.
Lastly we are a Google Apps reseller.
 

Bragging rights
My first wireless data transmission was in 1983 between two Sinclair ZX Spectrum computers over 6 miles!

Eaten here a few times recently and it has always been exceptional. Most recently I noticed the menu has changed and prices have been increased. Had a takeway recently for the first time and it was excellent! The delivery lady was very chatty and polite.

This is currently my favorite place for a quick take out latte in Lancaster Always quick service and great coffee! The store is airy and in a great location. "The Daily Dose Card" is a bonus if you are a regular.
